Cee is a good friend of mine and she has set up this weekly challenge to “Share Your World” by asking us all to answer some questions about life, the universe and everything.

Here are this week’s questions and my answers! And don’t forget to visit Cee’s blog if you’d like to find out how you can be involved.

1. You are invited to a party that will be attended  by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

Hmmm, that’s a tricky one.  I think I’d really intend to go and I’d make the effort to go but even right up to pushing the door open and walking in I’ve been known to change my mind and just go home.  It depends on the day.  I did run into a famous cricketer once in a bank and for those of you who already know I’m a cricket fanatic – you know that was a BIG deal for me.  I saw Kim Hughes – former Captain of the Australian Team and King of the sweep shot and had the opportunity to say hello and have a chat but I was frozen to the spot and literally couldn’t speak.  🙂  Seriously, I was.

2. If you were the original designer of one existing corporate logo, which one would you select?

If it was a case of reaping the royalties from its use, I’d have to say Coca Cola.  The whole world knows Coke.

3. If you could be a student of any university in the world right now, where would you enroll?  Irregardless of which university assume they teach what you want to study.

I’d study at Oxford University in England as part of Magdalen college.  I would study a combination of Philosophy, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, Anthropology and Comparative Mythology and graduate as a Museum Curator specialising in ancient coins, medallions and personal ornaments.  You can look for me there – I’ll be the one in the hat hanging out in the library or kicking my way through piles of golden leaves in the quad on the way to choir practice.

4. If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single public building or institution, which building would you choose?

Definitely the Louvre in Paris.  I’d love to have time to check out all the wonderful art – Venus de Milo, the Egyptian Antiquities, the sculptures, paintings, glass and pottery!  The Greek and Roman pieces, Persian treasures.  Fantastic!!  And secretly, when no one was around, I’d probably touch them too. Shhhh!!!

Okay, that’s all from me for this week – thanks Cee!!

Hey there, great answers to all!
Your answer about university and mine were both spot on. Even though I live in the US I also answered Oxford. The history alone is enough for me.

If my last answer was going to be different I’d be joing you in Paris.

Loved your answers too and I did consider a library although the Louvre won out, this time. 🙂
